Yesterday: Attended successful PhD defense of colleague. Recognized importance of well-established work. Interesting that examiners mostly discussed where the applicant thought future directions might proceed, as opposed to validating the premise behind the presented work.

Talked with career counseling about organizing materials for possible applications. Not exactly as detail-helpful as I would've hoped, as no suggestions on how to arrange graduate research to explore desirable experiences through research process. Will ask at Waterloo, and continue as planned (ie. these daily scrums; exploring and practising technical side of things, etc). Considering introducing the scrum concept to colleagues in the lab to facilitate improved communications.

Today: Implement grouping/clustering based on block separation. Implement transformation-based validation (ie. modification of original step 2 of process). Generate a file-loading for test cases so there is consistency in process validation. Consider implementing/incorporating animation files from CPSC453 where points are transformed across keyframes.

Consider laying out how I'd like the thesis to look and how I'd like it to describe the various implementations and stages along the way. Document last Wednesday's discussion in latex for possible future writing/papers. Read more...

Roadblocks: Not being overwhelmed, being realistic, and taking it baby-step by baby-step.

Where Does this Fit In: Developing good visualizations - as well as a mathematical discussion of the process - along the way helps demonstrate proof-of-concepts, provides affirmation of skill sets for resource/backing requests, and justifies the direction to be taken. Laying out how I'd like the thesis to look motivations what needs to be accomplished to "fill in the blanks" as it were, and guide what stages need to be done.
